in reply to email on WIN32

I've been using Email::Stuff lately. Doesn't get any easier. From the docs (with a mod for using SMTP):

# Prepare the message my $body = <<'AMBUSH_READY'; Dear Santa I have killed Bun Bun. Yes, I know what you are thinking... but it was actually a total acc +ident. I was in a crowded line at a BayWatch signing, and I tripped, and st +ood on his head. I know. Oops! :/ So anyways, I am willing to sell you the body for $1 million dollars +. Be near the pinhole to the Dimension of Pain at midnight. Alias AMBUSH_READY # Create and send the email in one shot Email::Stuff->from ('cpan@ali.as' ) ->to ('santa@northpole.org' ) ->bcc ('bunbun@sluggy.com' ) ->text_body($body ) ->attach (io('dead_bunbun_faked.gif')->all, filename => 'dead_bunbun_proof.gif') ->using ('SMTP', Host => 'smtp.mail.yahoo.com') ->send;

Cheers,

Brent

    Hi Brent Here's what I'm doing (and it doesn't work). I'm feeling pretty stupid about this.
    use Email::Stuff; use IO::All; $body = 'this is a test'; # Create and send the email in one shot Email::Stuff->from ('brejen@comcast.net' ) ->to ('ailithir@yahoo.com' ) ->bcc ('slyder2412@hotmail.com' ) ->text_body($body ) ->attach (io('test.doc')->all, filename => 'test.doc') ->using ('SMTP', Host => 'smtp.mail.yahoo.com') ->send;
        sorry, of course 'it does not work' is not very helpful...unfortunately, there is no error printed so I have no idea what further information to include.
